    This is my 4th blowout in 5 months. Hit a pothole....Blowout (2). Curb your tire....Blowout. Run over unseen object ....Blowout. Cost. 310.00 per front tires. 360.00 per rear tires. Hands down the worse tires ever on a luxury car. Stay away low profile tires regardless if that's all there is because the stress, frustration and cost is not worth it.

    I bought a new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas two years ago direct from Volkswagen that came with Cross Continental Sport 255/50/r20 tires. The tires have had to be repaired or replaced individually 4 times in 2 years. A few days ago while I was working out of town my right rear tire exploded out the sidewall when I was going 60-70km hr getting onto a highway bridge at night. Sure the road was a bit bumpy but there were no potholes or anything I went over. There was no shoulder on the bridge so I was forced to drive on the rim for 4 km. This is outrageous for tires that cost $350 a piece. Someone is going to get hurt if these aren’t recalled. If anyone has these specific tires on their vehicles I would highly suggest replacing with any other brand, even the cheapest tires would be better and safer than these.

      I really thought I was losing my mind until I read these reviews. I’ve replaced 5 tires in a little of a year. On my 2016 e350 December 31, 2020 I hit a pot hole 2 blowouts.. I said okay my fault I thought... but I kept replaying in my head saying I wasn’t going that fast but I accepted it and kept moving. 6 month later I accidentally hit a curb not hard at all two blowouts... Yesterday I’m driving and back tire hits something on the road that a million other cars rode over.. I get a blowout. Yeah I’m done. They are poor tires. These have been the most blowouts I’ve had in over 30 years of driving... I’m dead serious. I don’t get blowouts and it’s more than a coincidence.

      Our 18 month old Continental tires have had 2 of the 4 tire sensors replaced. this has cost us over a $100 each to be replaced. Will never buy their tires again. The actual tires seem to be good no problems. Has anyone else had this experience?

      Within the past week, I've experienced two (2) blowouts while operating my 2017 A6 on the freeway(s): The first (1st) caused collision damage from the force of the tire literally exploding (guess who's stuck paying for the deductible). The second (2nd) occurred (three (3) days later) while I was doing the speed limit on I-696 in the middle of the day with clear skies and just out of nowhere, I hear a loud pop!

      I contacted the dealership (Audi of Rochester Hills) to convey the aforementioned, their Service Center Manager stated that they recommend either Michelin or Pirelli tires: Then why are you selling vehicles off the lot with Continental tires?! Outside of leaving my comments on this site, I'll also be contacting the BBB in addition to an Attorney. I am beyond grateful that no one was injured during either incident, however, I'm certain that this company has been made aware of their piss poor products! If I could give zero (0) stars, I would have: Please stay safe everyone and stay away from Continental tires!

      When exiting the off ramp from the freeway my tire exploded. Very scary moment for me. My 2013 Buick Verano only has 46,000 miles on it. The whole outside of the tire is shredded. After googling the problem I found others that had the same problem with Continental tires. Needless to say I will replace all 4 tires with a more one. Being a senior I felt my life was in danger if it would’ve happened going 65 mph.

      Purchased a new 2019 Ford F-450 Limited with 19.5” Continental tires from factory. At only 18,500 miles the tires are worn out on the inside and outside edges. There are also chunks of the tires coming off. Vehicle serviced at Ford and there was never a mention of the tires wearing out. Noticed tires having issues and returned to Ford Country in Las Vegas where I was told that it was my fault they were wearing out. Was referred to third party tire company who informed me that they constantly replace these tires on F-450’s. These are on the front of this F-450 which if they would have failed could have resulted in serious injury or death!

      Cost to replace front tires with only 18,500 miles to ensure my safety and the safety of others around me on the road was almost $950 at my expense! How is it that Continental Tires and the Ford Motor Company are allowed to risk the safety and lives of people? If anyone is interested in more information, I have pictures that prove this!

      2020 AMG, Continental Run Flat tires are totally unsafe,10,000 miles and sidewall bubbles appear, one month later rear tires blows. I have lost confidence driving this car in fear of the tires. Complained to Mercedes Benz and they offered to pay half the price of one tire. Continental Tires are unsafe, I will be changing all 4 tires ASAP!! Based upon other reviews this seems to be a well known problem!!!!
